Polish Spanish Civil War veteran Stanislas Kubacki wrote to his wife and son.
My beloved wife Genia and my beloved son Edria,
For the last time, I write you a few words.
I'm informing you that I appeared before a German military tribunal on February 18.
I was condemned to death, and today I go before the firing squad. I kept my calm till the last moment, and I remained faithful to all my family.
My dear Genia, I ask you not to be cast down by my death, but to raise our son well, for he'll son work for you and remains with you as a souvenir of me. Love him more than your life. I am done.
I kiss you for the last time, as well as your family, mine, and all our friends.
I die for freedom
Your Stanislas Kubacki
